I Don’t Want to Live Forever

I Don’t Want to Live Forever

 

Here’s the way our story started

It’s my favorite one to share

Lived together then we parted

Now I long to go back there

 

Followed you through Indiana

And I’d do it all again

Back to Terre Haute

Or places more remote

Just to be with you my friend


I don’t want to live forever

I just want to live with you

If that takes another lifetime

Don’t know what I’m gonna do


In between us are the chapters

Of the other lives we knew

All the laughter ever after

Won’t replace my time with you

 

I’m grounded out in California

Odds of going home are thin

But I’ll be glad to wait

To meet at Heaven’s Gate

Then eternity I’d spend

 

But I don’t want to live forever

If it won’t be lived with you

Before it comes to other lifetimes

Be with me till this one’s through

 

I don’t understand forever

It’s a place erased of time

I barely comprehend

Right now, and then

How to leave the past behind

 

If I could look into the future

I’d predict a happy end

A life of luxury and pleasure

Won’t equal moments with my friend

—- Music Break —-


Followed you through Indiana

And I’d do it all again

Back to Terre Haute

Or places more remote

Just to be with you my friend


I don’t want to live forever

I just want to live with you

If that takes another lifetime

Let it be lived with you, too

You
